Your heroism and service is honored today, the 130th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. How nice that your descendants remember you with such pride.

Rest In Peace.

On Sunday, Dember 18th, 2011, at noon, we will meet to remember and lay a wreath at the grave of our dear uncle Thomas J Norton.

Thomas J Norton was shot in the line of duty by a rogue cop exactly to the day 130 years ago on Delancy St, New York City.
Thomas J Norton was the son of Irish immigrants who settled in Stevensville, Sullivan County, NY. He was well liked and popular with his friends. In December 1879 he joined the New York police force. His murder took a huge toll on the Norton family and created a huge void in their lives. The love they had for their dear Tom has transcended through generations. A large portrait of him has been passed down those generations along with his story so that we will never forget this man who gave his all.
